Washi Tape Cupcake Birthday Card

Simply adorable washi tape cupcake birthday cards

We had a snow day yesterday, so I threw on my coziest sweats and sat down to craft the afternoon away. Only problem was that I had no idea what I wanted to craft, until I came across a mini roll of washi tape that reminded me of sprinkles. And suddenly the idea for a cupcake birthday card was born!

Yeah, I realize that my creative process is kind of sporadic, but I like to go where inspiration leads me.

I made up one cupcake birthday card to make sure that my idea was actually do-able, and was so smitten with the results that I made another!

How to make a cupcake birthday card with washi tape:

Materials Needed:


1.) Add several rows of washi tape to a piece of card stock or construction paper. You’ll need about 5 rows for the cupcake liner and 5 rows of the Sprinkle Washi Tape for the frosting.

2.) To cut out the cupcake liner, cut a square, then round off two corners for the bottom. For the frosting, cut out a cloud-like shape. Use a circle punch or trace a circle for the cherries on top.

3.) Glue the liner, frosting and cherry together for each cupcake, then glue each cupcake to the front of a blank card.

4.) Finish by hand-lettering a birthday greeting on each!

Aren’t they just adorable!? The options of washi tape liners + frosting are endless; you could customize these for any kind of occasion! Tape a stick to the back and these would be cute cupcake toppers, or string them together to create a birthday banner!
